The Department for Education has announced that as part of the tutoring fund, it will make a one-off, ring-fenced grant of up to £96M for colleges, sixth forms and all 16-19 providers, to provide small group tutoring activity for disadvantaged 16-19 students whose studies have been disrupted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
